Galapagos has always been known for its biodiversity, as the archipelago hosts myriad endemic plant and animal species such as sea lions and penguins, including air, land and sea creatures. This earned it its name of Enchanted Islands as far back as the 16th century. Perhaps the secret behind this amazing fertility is based on its volcanic activity, since the archipelago is the second most active in the world after Hawaii.

In the last couple of decades, tourism has been on the rise worldwide, especially to such mesmerizing destinations as Galapagos. Specifically in San Cristobal, the number of tourists we receive every month has risen to tens of thousands, yet, thanks to local measures, tourism is controlled so as to not negatively impact the natural treasures of the archipelago. This allows visitors to enjoy them today and to keep doing so in the future.

In order to make your visit as delightful as possible, we provide many services that you won't find anywhere else when it comes to accommodation. These are some of the benefits our clients enjoy:

  • Free transfer from and to the airport or dock
  • Free wifi, AC, jacuzzi and pool
  • Tour and activity planning
  • Restaurant and bar (paid)
  • Massage sessions (paid)

And much more! Just come stay with us and see for yourself.

We welcome visitors to the hotel which is conveniently located next to the pier, where it's easy to set sail on a boat, or venture along the waterfront and town center where you can find all the shops and services you may need during your stay.
